It's not passion, it's the voice of experience. You may be able to
articulate your general requirements, but some of us have been building
software for decades and know that something that may sound plausible
at a high level often turns into a design and coding nightmare. That
has been the case with many attempts to build software of the kind
you'd like to have. You could prove us wrong by creating a
counterexample that the world adopts...
